TV TUESDAY: GAL GADOT TO LEAD 'HEDY LAMARR' TV SERIES! PATRICK WILSON TO LEAD STEPHEN KING'S 'IN THE TALL GRASS' AT NETFLIX! 'LAST MAN STANDING' CASTS NEW MANDY AND BOYD!

GAL GADOT TO LEAD
HEDY LAMARR MINI SERIES?
Gal Gadot is also producing!
TV news all day today, people! Wonder Woman's Gal Gadot is negotiating to lead Showtime's new series about famous Hollywood actress and super intelligent inventor HEDY LAMARR! Beside being the star of Hollywood's greatest hits in the 40's, for example Samson and Dalilah, she was also an inventor whose inventions led to WiFi and GPS. As 'Deadline' reports, Austrian born Lamarr started her career in Czechoslovakia in the early 1930s before leaving her husband, a wealthy Austrian ammunition manufacturer, and moving to Paris and London where she got signed by Metro Goldwyn Meyer. When it comes to her scientific works, at the beginning of World War II, she and composer George Antheil developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes, which used spread spectrum and frequency.


 PATRICK WILSON TO LEAD
STEPHEN KING'S 'IN THE TALL GRASS' FILM AT NETFLIX!
Patrick Wilson will be the father!
 In other TV news today, it seems that Netflix' movie adaptation of Stephen King's IN THE TALL GRASS won't be toplined by James Marsden, but by another of our beloved actors Patrick Wilson together with Laysla De Oliveira and Harrison Gilbertson.

It follows brother and sister Cal and Becky Demuth! When Becky finds out she's pregnant during her second year at college, their parents decide to send her to live with her aunt and uncle until the baby is born, and Cal comes along with her during the spring break. After visiting a number of tourist destinations along the way they come across a vast field, where they hear a boy named Tobin crying out for help. The twins decide to venture into the field to help young Tobin, but soon realize that they may never get to leave and that something evil lurks within the tall grass!


 'LAST MAN STANDING'
CASTS NEW MANDY AND BOYD!
A week ago when I gave you new poster for the seventh, returning, season of TV's most popular family sitcom LAST MAN STANDING, which returns,
Molly McCook is the new improved Mandy Baxter
this time on Fox, last Friday in September, I also told you that, although most of the cast is back, including Tim Allen and Nancy Travis, as Mike and Vanessa Baxter, two actors will be replaced and now we have the names of their replacements! Molly McCook (Good Trouble) will play their middle daughter Mandy replacing Molly Ephraim who signed other contracts while the sitcom was on hiatus, and Jet Jurgensmeyer (he played Jack's grandson in Will & Grace) will play their grandson Boyd as they're jumping a bit in time and showing him as a 12 year boy at the brink of puberty. Hector Elizondo, Jonathan Adams,
Little Jet Jurgensmeyer who was amazing in Will And Grace is new Boyd
Amanda Fuller, Christoph Sanders and Jordan Masterson all return to the beloved sitcom about Allen's Mike, a married father of three girls who tries to maintain his manliness in the house dominated by women.

  1. I didn't know Hedy Lamarr was an inventor. Her invention skill certainly adds an interesting dimension to the beautiful and successful actress.

    The two new actor replacements in 'Last Man Standing' - look quite promising.

    1. She was, and she was also Jewish, methinks. I knew she was an expert physicists, but I did not know what inventions she came up with. There are many educated stars out there, but sometimes the ones you wouldn't expect have the highest education. Dolph Lundgren, for example, has a PHD in chemistry, methinks.

  2. I knew she was jewish (as is Gal Gadot); I didn't know she was a physicist or an inventor (I'm not sure every inventor is also a scientist). Anyway, a great personality!

    1. most fans still hate the actress that plays the oldest daughter, but I remember the first one was irritating as well, but I do adore her husband and Kyle too! I hope their Mexican maid will be around as well, she was fun in last season. I feel Molly Ephraim should have cancelled the deals she made and return to the sitcom that actually made her famous. She seems ungrateful this way, the same goes for that horrid actress that plays Darlene in Roseanne. Ungrateful, evil, backstabbing worm she is. She just could not wait for the opportunity to steal the show from Rosie who made her. And she was horrible in every other sitcom I've seen her in. I remember her being literally unwatchable in Living Biblically.

    2. Late night iPad typing made me sound like a baboon lol. I agree. She should have found a way to get out of those contracts and returned to her role as Mandy. At least Kyle is coming back. He's our favorite here. So dang funny!

      I was never a fan of Darlene. She just looks like a filthy human. Dan and Roseanne are what made that show, not her kids. I hope the new series tanks real quick.

    3. I hope they cut Kyle's hair, he had it long for too long :)
      Yes, Rosy and Dan, I think Goodman returned to this new one just because Rosy told him to do it. I also never understood why the actress that plays her sister is so popular among the fans. She is not bad, but for me way too over the top and too ridiculous. I think Conners will tank the very first evening, it will show ABC the power of the people. They will have no top comedy or programme this season. Fox is, meanwhile, moving up, methinks, with Last Man Standing and that new music show Masked Singer or what do they call it? My Nicole Scherzinger is in the jury :)

  4. I'm aware of Lamarr's history, and will check out the series if I have the chance.
